Never mind your fancy, overpriced hotels, should you be fortunate to stay at Avondale you can expect 5 star treatment from the owner, Carole. On arrival our room was ready and Carole spent time telling us about York and places of interest. She is extremely knowledgeable. The Avondale is absolutely spotless. Room and en suite perfect size. Great selection of...

Carol gave us a warm welcome and was very accommodating to our needs. Our room was tidy and had everything you could want including a brief history on York. We were lucky to have a room on the top floor where we could see the Minster. I can not thank her enough for how she accommodated my food allergies not...

Another visit to lovely warm establishment. Having been here before I knew it would be a warm welcome from Carroll it is my wife first visit and I'd informed Carroll of her disability Carroll was fantastic with her. It is a lovely clean well priced accommodation. I love stopping here. Breakfast is always red hot and plenty full. Highly recommend.

We were greeted by the owner on arrival who showed us to our room and then gave us a 5 minute insight into the things worth seeing in and around the city which was very helpful. The breakfast was great with loads of choice. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone.

A group of six of us stayed here for my birthday weekend away - and we loved it. Carol couldn't have been more welcoming - offering us advice on the sights of York. We brought four cars instead of the originally planned three and she accommodating us. Most hotels in the City Centre were expensive, and at least £10 per...

My Sister and I stayed at Avondale (Oct 13th to 17th) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Twin Room was located on the top floor and had good view of York and part of the Minster. The room was very spacious and well appointed, with a very modern and well stocked en-suite. The beds were very comfortable and after a days...

This was my third visit to York & to Avondale. Carole is so welcoming and the ensuite rooms are nicely decorated, although the twin room was a little cramped. The breakfast is excellent and the location is a short walk from the city centre - great location for all the attractions. I think anyone would be hard pushed to fine...

My wife and I stayed at Avondale for two nights from the 2nd October. Its a great B&B with welcoming hosts who are a mine of information about York and its history. The rooms are not huge but spotlessly clean and beautifully presented with a small en-suite.The excellent breakfast is served in the really nice dining room which is light...
